Luxe to Less Moisturisers
As the cooler weather draws near and we prepare to hunker down for winter, for many of us, the thought of uncomfortable dry skin is on our minds.
We’re exposed to heating, drier environmental air, less water intake and a sense of going into hibernation so we care less about our skin.
Now, as winter knocks on our door, it is a perfect time to reassess your skin care routine, especially your moisturiser. In summer we tend to opt for lighter textures but now we should be looking for something more hydrating and more nourishing to replace lost moisture and essential oils. No matter how much or little you want to spend, there are moisturisers for every skin type and budget.
